She has been called the Queen of Rap.

And Cardi B just earned her crown.

The 26-year-old rapper earned Best Rap Album - which historically is a very male-dominated category - for Invasion Of Privacy at the 2019 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night.

Cardi was visibly shaken as she received the honor as she joked 'maybe I should start smoking weed.'

This comes after Drake beat out pal Travis Scott as they competed in the Best Rap Song category. 

The 32-year-old Canadian rapper took home Best Rap Song for God's Plan at the Aside from Travis, Drake edged out quite the impressive field including Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, and Jay Rock.

Drake sent a message during his acceptance speech as he said: 'We play an opinion based sport, not a factual based sport. 

'You already won if you have people singing your songs word for word, if they're singing in your hometown. You're already winning, you don't need this right here. 

Earlier in the night  Lady Gaga was the first to take home an award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at the gala event. 

The 32-year-old singer accepted the award on behalf of herself and Bradley Cooper for the A Star Is Born soundtrack hit Shallow as the 44-year-old actor/director attended the BAFTAs on the same day.

Gaga urged the audience to be more compassionate when it comes to mental health issues as she said: 'If you see somebody that’s hurting, don’t look away.

'If you're hurting, even though it might be hard, try to find that bravery within yourself to dive deep and tell somebody.' 

The New York-native is already a double winner as earlier in the night she earned  Best Pop Solo Performance for her album Joanne.

It was also A Star Is Born's second win of the night as earlier they were announced as the winners in the Best Song Written For Visual Media category.   

Kacey Musgraves was a big winner as she earned Best Country Album for the critically-acclaimed Golden Hour.

The 30-year-old star beat out heavy competition including Kelsea Ballerini, Brothers Osborne, Ashley McBryde, and Chris Stapleton.

One of the most emotional parts of the night came during a tribute for Dolly Parton as the country legend was joined by Musgraves and Katy Perry as they opened a medley of some of the 73-year-old's greatest hits.

Miley Cyrus joined in on the fun as she sung Jolene - which she has done routinely in recent years - but this time she did it next to her godmother. 

Maren Morris and Little Big Town also hit the stage as the band even included Linda Perry.

Donald Glover was not in attendance at the event but he did earn one of the biggest honors of the night; Song Of The Year for This Is America.   

Alicia Keys proved that she was the hostess with the mostess as she began her monologue to a standing ovation.

The 38-year-old music superstar acknowleged 'sister' Tracee Ellis Ross as well as honoree Dolly Parton. 

She then proceeded to bring out some of her sisters including Jada Pinkett Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, and big surprise former first lady Michelle Obama. 

Camila Cabello opened the show with a fun performance of her smash hit Havana. She was joined by Ricky Martin and Bad Bunny. 

Despite making her name as one of music's biggest stars in the past year, Ariana Grande was noticeably absent from the show after a disagreement with the show's producer.

Before the ceremony, it was announced that she had won the coveted Best Pop Vocal award for her work on Sweetener. 

She beat out tough competition including Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, Pink, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello.

The singer had been due to take to the stage at the gala  to sing one of her tracks, but it was reported earlier this week that she now won't even be in attendance at the event following a dispute with the organizers.

Grande claims she pulled out of performing at the Grammy awards because her 'creativity and self expression was stifled' by the producers.

Ariana has since broken her silence on the matter, claiming producers of the event refused to allow her to show her 'creativity', despite her offering up 'three different songs' that she could perform.

Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Travis Scott, Diana Ross, and Cardi B are among a crowded field of performers scheduled for Sunday night's Alicia Keys-hosted Grammy Awards. 

Gaga will perform with Mark Ronson, with whom she collaborated on the song Shallow, while her A Star Is Born co-star Bradley Cooper represents the BAFTA Awards which also take place that same night. 

Gaga tied for the third-highest number of nominations this year with five, for record of the year, song of the year, best pop duo or performance, and best song written for visual media for Shallow; and best pop performance for Joanne (Where Do You Think You're Goin'?).

She's previously won six Grammy awards, including two in 2010, three in 2011, and one in 2015 for her collaboration album with Tony Bennett.

Dua Lipa will be making her Grammy stage debut on the show, where she'll be joined by St. Vincent for a special performance, while Adams will sing alongside Fantasia and Day in a tribute to late Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin.

However one star who will not be on stage - either performing or accepting an award, is Ariana Grande.

This is despite Ariana featuring prominently on billboards promoting the event throughout Los Angeles, and being nominated for both Best Pop Vocal Performance (for God Is a Woman) and Best Pop Vocal Album (for 2018's Sweetener). 

The move comes due to a disagreement with Grammy producers over which songs she would perform, according to sources close to the situation.

An insider tells Variety that Grande felt 'insulted' after producers initially refused to allow her to perform 7 Rings,' the latest single from her forthcoming album Thank U, Next.

A compromise was reached whereby 7 Rings would be part of a medley, but Grande pulled out after producers insisted that the second song be of their choosing. 

The source added that such stipulations were not imposed on other performers at the show. 

The 61st annual Grammy Awards are produced by AEG Ehrlich Ventures for the Recording Academy. Ken Ehrlich is executive producer, Ben Winston is executive producer, Louis J. Horvitz is director, Chantel Sausedo is the producer, and David Wild and Ehrlich are the writers.
